An Andy Warhol original print was one of the items left behind in Travelodge hotels in Norwich (there are three) in 2020.
Other items discovered include a family of gnomes, someone’s marriage vows, a bottle containing sand from a Normandy beach, a box of personalised face masks and a garden sculpture made from jars of Colman’s Mustard.
Shakila Ahmed, of Travelodge, said the firm’s hotels across the country had seen an increase in items being left behind by medical staff after staying open for key workers during lockdown.
“With millions of customers annually staying at our 563 UK hotels we do get a range of interesting items left behind. This year’s audit for our three Norwich hotels includes a 40-year-old teddy bear called Paddy, wedding vows, an original Andy Warhol print and a family of gnomes.Shakila Ahmed
We have seen a rise in items being left behind by medical professionals. This includes a stethoscope, scrubs, crocs and a nurse’s personal diary documenting their experience of working through the pandemic plus lots of personalised face masks.”
